On October 10, 2018, Mayor Bloomberg, one of the richest men in the world, declared he was now changing parties to ‘Democrat’. But as a Republican, an Independent or a Dem, his ideas have never changed. He has always been a progressive liberal. Bloomberg had spent millions in the spring of 2018 in an open attempt to ensure that there would be no Republican Gubernatorial nominee on the California November ballot. Although this was publicly stated, many California Republicans were too naive to see Bloomberg’s method of splitting the vote. He subsequently spent 100 million dollars to destroy Republican nominees nationwide in the fall of 2018. Multiple millions were targeted in Orange County, California.
California’s Republican party problems have not been with Republican ideas, but with a confused and compromised Republican “leadership”. Republican leaders who resent and refuse to support Republican party ideals have been more of its enemy than the Democrat Party and the media combined. This intentional self-destruction of the party by its own caretakers is their greatest legacy. Through Proposition 14, they initiated and then accommodated continued changes in California’s election law that have robbed the party membership of its own voice. This ‘mob rule’ primary was only the most obvious of politically-suicidal acts. Though California’s founding party, today’s California’s Republican Party ‘leadership’ gave up long before Nov. 6.
On this Nov. 6 same-day voting took place in every county of the state without requiring any identification. On this and other open-invitations to voter fraud, the Republican Party has been largely silent. How can anyone expect Republican votes to have any meaning when Republican leaders have themselves dismissed and diminished their own voters, intentionally reducing their voice? Republican leaders who promote their opponent’s ideas and opponents’ party think they are ‘doing the Republican party a favor’ progressing it to a ‘brave new ‘post-partisan world. But like Arnold (the promulgator of Prop 14) and others what they are not seeking to advance the Republican Party or its values, they merely seek personal approval and advantage.
Those familiar with the founding of our nation know that Aaron Burr was widely disdained by the other founders. It was not because Burr shot Hamilton, that merely marked the end of his career. Burr was considered reprehensible for his ‘self-serving’ agenda. He had been widely recognized for making his first principle, “What’s in this for me?” Today’s Democrat Party has become notorious for marketing goodies to a self-centered society, but the California Republican Party’s loss of vision and purpose to “Burr-like” self-promotion has led to a collapse and surrender to Democrat party assertions and values.
There is a wispy silver lining to this last election. Bloomberg’s millions were targeted at removing Congressional Republicans. He used that wealth to stir the simple-minded into a targeted, class-hatred toward each Republican Congressional member, but there were still many unsung victories in Orange County. ProLife candidates all down the ballot did very well in Orange County on the local level. In Mayoral, City Council, City Attorney, School Board and other local races, the endorsed pro-life candidates won 2/3 of the races endorsed.
The Republican Party will need to reassess who it is at its next State convention. Will it be led by principles or by Burrs’ and Bloombergs’?
